NHL Referee Goes Through Puberty Right Before Our Eyes (Video)

NHL referee Chris Rooney may be 35-years-old, but during last night’s game between the Carolina Hurricanes and the New York Islanders, he took a trip back in time to somewhere around the year 1991, when he was a young teenager just hitting puberty.

Unfortunately for Chris, the two teams and approximately 4976 fans in attendance, along with a live television audience, was there to witness him relive this moment from the past as his screeching voice echoed throughout the Nassau Coliseum while announcing the ruling of a video review following a Carolina goal.

It was an embarrassing moment for the veteran referee, but perhaps Rooney was lucky this game took place in an empty Nassau Coliseum, rather than at the raucous Bell Centre, which often houses a sellout crowd of over 21,000.
